-- captions by vitac -- a year after isis took over iraq's second largest city, the u.s. president says a new strategy is needed to defeat the militants. cnn has a report. a manhunt in upstate new york for two convicted killers who made a prison escape. and cnn chases down a south african organizer to answer questions about the fifa scandal.
11:01 pm
thanks for joining us. this is "cnn newsroom." and we begin the latest in the fight against isis. it has now been one year since the iraqi city of mosul fell to the extremist group causing hundreds of thousands a flee their homes. but so far any plans to recapture iraq's second largest city have stalled. an estimated 1 million residents remain under isis rule there. on monday, president barack obama sat down with the prime minister on the sidelines of the g-7 summit. >> when a finalized plan is presented to me by the pentagon, then i will share it with the american people. we don't yet have a complete
11:02 pm
strategy because it requires commitments on the part of the iraqis as well about how recruitment takes place, about how that strange takes place. the details of that are not yet worked out. >> there are new details on information learned by u.s. officials during a raid in syria last month include the possibility that isis wives may play a greater role in the terrorist group operations than previously thought because they attract less attention. the raid led to the capture of the isis leader's wife. she has given significant information and intelligent helping the u.s. better understand isis communications and organization. and the united states had intelligence for months on probable locations for abubakar

baghdady, but the u.s. could not launch raids to capture him. he stays in populated areas knowing the u.s. won't risk killing civilians. iraqi troops are now closing in on ramadi in anbar province. isis captured that city last month. the terror group is threatening a key military base nearby where iraqi forces are said to be preparing an all-out assault on the extremists. andy peyton-walsh was with the troops on the front lines. >> reporter: a road leads to the iraqi base, the closest the media has been taken since it fell to isis. it is meant to be where the soldiers are amassing to retake ramadi from isis but it's they
11:04 pm
are mostly deployed outside. and here, is it the iraqi army, along the northern edge of their base in a vicious front line with isis, along the river. isis have blocked a dam upstream to lower the tides and help them attack. is it minute by minute here. the situation can change and that river bed, very much the front line. they have been using the water from the lake to keep its levels high. but still, as you can hear, isis are very close. they see and watch isis daily. but say they are overlooked by coalition air strikes. they're supposed to give us some support from war planes he says we're in control of the ground. all we need is air support.
11:05 pm
here, caught between the isis towns of ramadi and fallujah they face a thousand isis, they think but he cease only a few with long beards and a flag here. but, soon, isis fire back. this is what happens when you poke that snake. >> moving out? >> yep. [ gunshots ]. >> reporter: they lead us out. this the iraqi army stronghold where they speak of the readiness and gloer yry to come.
11:06 pm
an urgent manhunt is underway right now in new york where two killers escaped from a maximum security prison in upstate new york close to the canadian border. police say the convicts used power tools to cut through steel and cement walls. now the question is who might have helped them. jason carole has more. >> reporter: cars stopped at check points on roads leading to and from the clinton correctional facility, police looking for looks to the location of the two convicts. the investigators are trying to find out if the two had help breaking out of the maximum security prison. a woman inside the prison has been questioned as a possible accomplice. matt and sweat discovered missing early saturday morning. >> leaving no stone unturned. they could be out of state but
11:07 pm
they could be holed up here in dannemora. >> reporter: they escaped from the upstate prison, both in side by side cells. they used power tools to cut through steel walls, crawled through two foot wide underground pipes emerging through a manhole to freedom. look right up here on barker street, you can see there are a few prison guards standing next to the manhole which is located a block or so from the outer wall of the correctional facility. matt and sweat stuffed their bunk with clothes as a decoy and leaving behind a racist cartoon with the words "have a nice day" the governor given a tour of the escape route. >> they needed equipment they wouldn't have help. >> reporter: jack rugar agrees.
11:08 pm
he used to be a guard and inside the facilities machine shop for nearly four decades. >> got to have a lot of help. >> reporter: do you think they had help from the inside or outside or a combination of both? >> a combination of both. you don't cut through a steel wall without someone hearing you. >> reporter: one point is clear, the inmates are extremely dangerous. the search stretching from canada, 20 miles north of the prison all the way to mexico. 300 members of law enforcement in the manhunt which includes search dogs and going door to door. tessa had her home and garage searched this weekend. >> some people said we were crazy for living up here. i never felt in danger. i felt safer. >> reporter: and your thoughts now? >> i'm with all the added security, police, corrections officers, everyone look everywhere i feel safer than we
11:09 pm
ever felt even with them at large. yes, is it a concern but i don't think they are anywhere around here right now. jason carole reporting from dannemora, new york. what makes this manhunt so urgent is that these men are extremely violent. one is described as psychotic, fearless and doesn't respond to pain. brian todd has the details. >> reporter: 49-year-old richard matt is by all accounts very distinguishable. his front teeth are reported to be metal. he has a marine corps insignia on his shoulder, hearts on his chest and left shoulder. david sweat may blend in a little more. but both are stone-cold killers. >> how dangerous and desperate are these guys? >> they are most dangerous. and clearly, the activity clearly indicates they are
11:10 pm
desperate. both of them callously killed people one dismembered his victim. >> reporter: richard matt is serving 25 years to life for kidnapping and beating to death his former boss whose body was found dismembered. the murder happened in 1997. matt fled to mexico to get away. served nine years there for killing a man in a bar fight and was extradited to the u.s. to face charges in the other case. he has cut himself, broke his call color bone and not seek treatment. he is totally totally fearless and doesn't respond to pain. this is not matt's first escape. in 1986 he broke out of a jail in erie county, new york. the knowledge of sweat's escape is chilling. >> an event like this tears open
11:11 pm
old wounds, tugs on people's emotional strings. >> reporter: sweat was killing a life sentence for killing kevin t tarsia in 2002. arnett gaston a former officer at riker's prison say that family could be in danger. >> you don't escape just to escape. freedom is sweet. but once you're out, then you start thinking about it's payback time. >> reporter: one former detective who worked on richard matt's case told me that police contacted him and warned of matt's escape. and another is prepared defend himself if matt comes after him. the state of new york is
11:12 pm
offering a $100,000 reward for the capture of these two killers. officials have gotten more than 150 tips. if you have information you are urged to call the u.s. marshals at 1-800-give-tip. we want to turn to the growing fifa scandal. the statement comes after fifa's compliance chief says the 2018 and 2022 bids could be voided if there was evidence of bribery. russia and qatar deny all bribery claims. >> bribery laws would not with a surprise. >> reporter: it's that simple. can you elaborate more? can you tell us more? what else do you know? >> so far every speculation was
11:13 pm
permitted regarding fifa and we know some people were already ready to sell votes for cash before the vote took place. but it's not -- we have to wait. now you have the department of justice investigating. we have the swiss justice -- the swiss general attorney investigating. we see what they find out. if everything is clean, there is a small chance that everything was clean then everybody can be relieved and fifa will be more than happy. >> and there is growing pressure on the organizer of the 2010 world cup in south africa to break his silence about his country's bid. we tried to get a word with him at his new job. >> reporter: for a man just weeks in the job, the mayor of port elizabeth is keeping a low profile. >> of course you can. >> this is a police space. >> i'm in the public space.
11:14 pm
>> reporter: that's because the new mayor is the president of south africa's football association and the man who ran south africa's bid to host the 2010 world cup. now drawn into the fifa scandal himself after a letter emerged from december 2007 where he acknowledges the $10 million sum at the heart of the fbi investigation and suggests it be deducted by fifa from funds to go to the organizing committee. south africa's minister of sports has denied any form of bribery. >> the fed got a payment of 10 million dollars u.s. was made to an approved program above board, does not equate to bribery. >> reporter: but the man who suggested how that payment should be made has not shown up to answer questions. in the run up to the world cup,
11:15 pm
he was the face of south africa's bid but it is a very different story now. it will be the ministry of sports dealing with all issues pertaining to the fifa affair because s. south africans have had scandals that reach right to the top. >> the scandals from the president to everybody. everybody they have just got their hands dirty. >> reporter: but there is also national pride at stake and the pride of port elizabeth locals about their mayor. >> nothing has been proven yet. >> and the fbi will come knocking on his door. >> they are not allowed to come here. >> it's -- from cnn. >> reporter: knocking on the door of city hall proved problematic for us pushed back by security as we tried to ask
11:16 pm
questions. begging the question why port elizabeth's new mayor is being so cagey. cnn, port elizabeth, south africa. i spoke with a professor of sports management at the university of michigan and the author of "money and soccer." i spoke about the challenges of reforming fifa. >> one of the difficult things about this is that really everybody has known for more or less 20 years that bribery and corruption has been a systematic part of fifa's organization. nothing that comes out is any news to anybody. the fact is now that the justice department in the u.s. is acting upon it and the question is just how far fifa is prepared to go internally in reforming itself. >> so i want to ask you this,
11:17 pm
how inevitable is bribery and corruption in an organization where you have a select group of officials with few checks and balances determining which country throughout the globe should host the world cup? >> well, i think the first point to make is that wherever you have large sums of money changing hands you are inefbtably going to get an incentive for bribery and corruption. the question is how you can minimize the bribery and corruption that might take place. and i think, clearly, fifa needs to do more. it needs to engage in a reform process. but bear many mind that two thirds of the members of the fifa congress voted for sepp blatter who oversaw the regime who has been exposed as corrupt. >> what systems and reforms need to be put in place to prevent a situation where bribes are paid in exchange for hosting the
11:18 pm
world cup do. you think it's possible to stop that from happening going forward? >> i think it is possible. and i think reform is possible. my proposal is there should be a separation of the world cup as a commercial organization from the administration of the game and the redistribution of indication generated by the world cup. and this has already happens in other sports organizations, for example in automotive sports, the fia is the governing body of motorsports but it is separate from formula one, the main championship. the fia redis buttes the funds but don't run the formula one. >> after being tainted so completely is it possible to overhaul and reform fifa particularly with sepp blatter still at the helm until the end
11:19 pm
of the year when another vote takes place? >> i think this is going to require a lot of restraint on all sides. i mean, clearly, many in europe and north america are calling for heads to roll and a complete clearing out of the organization. and that's unrealistic. it's just not going to happen given the structure of the fifa and the balance of power. but also, you know, the majority of fifa who have backed blatter need to accept the need for reform. ultimately the risk is if these two sides cannot reach agreement, the organization will disintegrate and move into separate blocks with europe and north america on one side, asia, and south america on the outside. another country takes action as a deadly virus spreads in south korea. we are live in seoul with the

welcome back, everyone. the world health organization is in south korea to help investigate the middle east respiratory syndrome outbreak. seven people infected with mers have died. the number of cases stands at 95. that includes one person in china. more than 2500 people are quarantined and more than 2,000 schools are closed. and hong kong is asking citizens not to travel to south korea. kathy novak is in seoul following this story. since you and i talked 24 hours ago, another person has died from mers and eight more people are confirmed to have the virus. a w.h.o. team has arrived to help south korea deal with the outbreak. how do they plan to do that?
11:25 pm
>> reporter: the team from the world health organization is working to try to retrace the steps of transmission and figure out exactly how it spread and what measures to put in place to stop it spreading further. it is still contained in hospitals. authorities want to keep it that way and make sure it doesn't spread into the public. that is what is causing hong kong to raise this alert you mentioned. authorities in hong kong say there's a significantly increased risk that the virus could spread into the public although there is no evidence that is likely to happen. schools closed as a precaution. and many of the recently confirmed cases can be traced to one emergency room at a hospital here in seoul and one thing the government is doing now is opening more than 200 preliminary testing centers and calling on people who may be experiencing any symptoms to report to those centers first so
11:26 pm
they don't expose any other emergency rooms to the virus. >> and the south korean government was criticized for the perceived lack of transparency in the initial handling of the virus, particularly with the first mers patient. what are authorities doing to win back the trust of citizens there and to contain this outbreak? >> well, one thing that the government did in the past couple of days was release a list of the hospitals that are affected and authorities are now promising to be transparent going forward and that is something that the world health organization and the south korean experts referred to in their opening remarks as they began to work together here today. and another thing that the government is saying that they are appealing to the public to trust them. i don't know if it can be said that the public is willing to trust the government but the health authorities are certainly calling on them to do just that. it's a matter of making sure
11:27 pm
that people have the correct information to protect themselves in the early stages especially. there are quite a number of rumors flowing and now people are being told to listen to the experts' advice and that remains to avoid large crowds and washing their hands. and one governor of a province that was effected by mers put it aptly. he said that south koreans are now battling two battles, one against the virus itself and the other gust fear. >> that is a very good point and good tips for people in seoul and across south korean. thanks to kathy novak bringing us up to date on the mers outbreak. malaysia airlines new ceo is taking action to save the company from a worsening financial state. he says that the airline was in bad shape when flight 370

disappeared in march and flight 317 was shot down last july in ukraine. he has cut 6,000 jobs. richard quest sat down with him to discuss the challenges ahead as he tries to turn the company around. >> the most important thing is to bring the cost down. the cost disadvantage is approximately 20% to our main competitors. and that has been much rooming over the years. so we have to reset the system, with regard to our effective cost and with regard to our processes. so we will create a completely new company september 1st and start with a clean sheet of paper. >> when you start, will you change the name? will you change the name? >> that is a very interesting question. because since the tragedies of 2014, the loyalty to our brand has increased in our home
